Clarion Housing Group: Further reading

Clarion Housing Group has partnered with Homeshare UK and the Fusion21 Foundation to offer its residents the chance to take part in a unique pilot programme.

The programme, called Homeshare, matches older people who can offer a spare room with a younger person who is looking for somewhere affordable to live and able to share their company and offer practical support around the home.

In the pilot phase, Clarion is seeking eight pairs of residents to live together and share their experiences to inform the future roll out of the programme.

The latest report by Homeshare UK, the membership network for over 20 local Homeshare services, shows that 96% of older people sharing their home felt 'less lonely' and that having a younger Homesharer has 'helped them a great deal through lockdown'.

'Kerslake Review' to further improve GLA Group housing delivery

Posted 13.10.21
Mayor of London: Further reading

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has appointed Lord Bob Kerslake to lead a review to further improve and streamline housing development across the wider Greater London Authority (GLA) Group and deliver more of the genuinely affordable homes Londoners need.

The review will examine housing delivery across the GLA Group and make recommendations to enable the Group to work together more effectively and benefit from collective experience and expertise.

It will provide a high-level view of housing delivery across the Group to date, identifying the number of homes built and the different routes to delivery.

The review will also inform the best way to approach piloting a "City Hall developer" to further expand the supply of much-needed low-cost homes for Londoners.
